In a clearing in the woods in Transylvania’s mountains, 80-year-old Silvia Dan sings a traditional song (doina) inherited from her grandmother. Her voice captures the beauty and magic of the forest – and she goes on to talk of her love of the land and her sadness at seeing the deforestation that has impacted the last great forest of Europe. Silvia is one of the stars of Interbeing, a multi-media project by Forests Without Frontiers founder, Nico de Transilvania (Nicoleta Carpineanu). This film charts the making of this concept album which weaves together recordings of elders and folkloric musicians in Romania with nature soundscapes and electronica. A range of musicians are featured alongside Silvia's beautiful voice, including local flute players and jazz musicians.
